If you’re looking for an almost complete hands-free vacuuming solution and if your budget allows it, it’s worth investing in a self-emptying robovac that has the ability to empty its own dustbin. Some models boast special dirt-detection sensors that provide a deeper clean of high-traffic zones in your home to get rid of even more pet hair.
